5a clutch pipe.

Copper pipe down to the chassis then a short piece of braided pipe to the slave - a old bit of braided brake pipe was what I used

They are not too difficult to change - you should be able to tell with a screw driver for any play - could well be the reason for your clunk although when I have had one fail its vibration you feel more

How to remove the Automatic Gearbox Selector Cover

Not like mine - to start with there are four screws holding mine in position ( 2 of which you cannot get at ) and the cover is up to the other end.

I have inherited an SE5a -Yikes!

I would check the timing wheel and if its still nylon or fibre change it for a alloy or steel one - otherwise the engine is pretty much bullet proof. Unlike the modern car you can fix things yourself.

Fuel pump/ lack of fuel

Fit a electric pump - you can fit it in series with the mechanical pump and with a push button use it to prime the carb.

Warning! 25A switch won't handle 18A for long.

Car fuses are often over rated he MGF EPAS system has two fuses 10A and 40A I fit 7.5A and 30A and think that the 7.5 is more than needed anyway - 5 is probably nearer the mark. 25 seems a bit low unless its a slow blow fuse.

Warning! 25A switch won't handle 18A for long.

Like I said here is no indication of what the rad fan fuse value should be - only the two relays.

Petrol hose ( again )

I have fitted my pump next to the tank where it is out of the weather and easier to get at. I have also kept the rubber hose to a minimum length and metal piped into the engine bay so all of the rubber is easy to see without having to get under the car.

The MB fan motor fuse value is not listed but I would think 40amp should be ok. being two speed the two coils are fused by 25 amp fuses but that has nothing to do with the fan current. 30/40 amp relays are readily available.

Parking sensors

I bought reversing sensors from Maplins and they work well ( £25 for a pair ) - you do have to fit them high enough tough - easy on the Coupe where I fitted them in the reflectors ( pic ) and easy on the 6/gtc where they just fit outside the inside the rear light units but not so easy to fit in the ...
